Recycling business shirts

Yesterday was our 3D5S meeting, where we explored recycling fabrics. This was inspired by our trip to Ceres in Brunswick. We had fun cutting up fabric, running it through the spinning wheel and knitting to create some really interesting fabrics. Good rugs, bags are in the making.

My partner's old business shirts were sacrificed to the cause....he now has a reason to buy those bargain priced good quality shirts he's spotted....I didn't get as far as knitting, but I'll get there!

The Australian Sheep and Wool show project is progressing well and slowly coming together. The next few weeks will be a flurry of activity to get pieces made. All very exciting and pictures will be posted after the judging takes place.
